Developing Nations Travel Grants

The Botanical Society of America is pleased to offer 10 travel grants in the amount of $1,000 each to the BOTANY 2021 conference in Boise, Idaho.
It is our goal to encourage international collaboration and foster connections within our international botanical community by extending financial help to those in need of assistance to attend this important conference. 

Applicants for the Developing Nations travel grant must be living in and traveling from a developing nation (excluding China) to the conference. Applicants must be current members of the Botanical Society of America. Applicants must also present an oral presentation or poster during the conference. Applicants must not have won this award the year before. Abstract submission for the conference will open in February 2021. 

Applications must be submitted through our BSA Awards portal and you will need your current BSA Username/Botany ID and password in order to submit.

In the award submission you will be required to provide your name, institutional affiliation, address and email, titel of your abstract, a link to your submitted abstract and a one-two paragraph statement about why attending BOTANY 2021 is important to you and your career in the botanical sciences.

This travel grant will be awarded by a lottery. Checks for the travel award will only be distributed in US dollars on site at the meeting in Boise to the winners.

More information on how to submit an application will be updated here when the award is opened in early 2021.
